  • {gallery}volvodoty{/gallery}  The Volvo Group Southern Africa, which markets and sells the Renault Trucks and Volvo Trucks brands in the region, recently named their top performing dealers. The company’s Aftermarket Dealer of the Year award was presented to Volvo Truck Centre Upington, while Volvo Truck Centre Bloemfontein walked away with top honours in the Sales Dealer of the Year category.  “The past 18 months have certainly been eventful for Renault Trucks and Volvo Trucks, as we successfully launched new product line-ups for both brands during this period,” said Christian Coolsaet, managing director of Volvo Trucks and Renault Trucks SA. “Both brands experienced their best sales performance to date during 2014, so we are very excited about the future of Renault Trucks and Volvo Trucks in the region.”  Coolsaet said the company’s focus is very much on supporting their customers every step of the way, and providing them with quality service, advice and products that adds profit and value to their businesses over the long term.    “That is the reason why when we determined our top dealers, we also took into consideration the dealers’ customer satisfaction scores, as our customers’ opinions are the ones that truly count,” said Coolsaet.  Both Volvo Truck Centre Bloemfontein and Upington grew their businesses exponentially during 2014 – a mean feat if one considers the relatively flat market growth of the local commercial vehicle industry last year.  According to Iain McCabe, general manager of retail development Volvo Trucks and Renault Trucks SA, they have been working hard to ensure the continuous improvement of their dealer network.  “As the world’s leading commercial vehicle manufacturer, we focus a lot of attention on aspects such as advanced training, the innovative use of technology, communication, financial and business guidance, as well the implementation of international best practices, in order to enhance our dealers’ service to our customers,” said McCabe.  By the end of 2015, the company will have a dealer footprint of 26 dealers in South Africa, which will be a 100% growth in the last three years.  The company opened a new dealership in Harrismith in November 2014, and is in the process of completing a new multi-million Rand facility in Bloemfontein.  “With the Volvo Group being on the cutting edge of innovation in the commercial vehicle industry, we are leading the way in supporting fleet owners in a modern and very practical way,” said Coolsaet. “These innovations include telematics gateways, interactive driver mobile applications and advanced fleet management systems.”  Going into the future, it will become more and more imperative for truck manufacturers to explore and understand a region’s local operating environment, and subsequently adapt their business approaches to meet African fleet owners’ precise transport requirements.    “Operating in the region for over 13 years, we believe that we are able to meet these unique requirements and offer local customers the best transport solutions available – ones that makes a tangible difference to their businesses in real time,” concluded Coolsaet.
